hile they've attracted a dedicated following of enthusiasts, electric cars are still carving out their niche and flirting with the mainstream. However, there are enough models now in production that we can single out some of the more luxurious examples.
To do so, we consulted John Filiss, publisher of the online automotive resource Serious Wheels . The resulting list runs the gamut from sporty electric vehicles to luxury sedans to recreation vehicles. It also includes one concept car that doesn't exist outside of its prototype but which Filiss predicts is likely to come into production.
We'll also look at one hybrid car that deserved inclusion because it is sometimes thought of as a full electric car. As Filiss pointed out, "For those who only travel short distances, it really is a full electric car."
